Description

Rumor is the product of grandfather Apocalypse who has renowned EPD's and dam Stargazer's Angelina. Sire, Royal Rumble, is the offspring of 6PERUVIAN ROYAL GOLD 5002 IMPR98. Royal Gold was a prolific prepotent breeding fawn herd sire. We took a chance on her sire Stargazer's Royal Rumble with his good EPDs and histogram. Rumor has one of the best histograms on the farm and she has some very nice trait values across the spectrum of EPD traits. Her AFD at two is 18 with an SD of 3.0 and CV of 16 and her most recent 2019 is 18.9 with SD of 3.3. Her two year old histogram is better than her 1 year results. She is destined to have longevity of fineness.

Rumor's color is light fawn the color looks like spun gold. Her Density is very good, staple is excellent and luster & brightness is great. What guard hairs she does have they are extremely fine. Her 2017 histogram AFD is at 15. If she has a fault it would be the coverage on the face. I can live with that with the quality of fiber she is producing. I expect her fiber to be grade one far into the future. In visualizing her AFD in the 2020 cut my evaluation is again a grade 1.

Rumor has famous lineage on top and bottom. Grandfather El Bello, who is one of the most prolific Studmasters of all. I love it when a find an alpaca with El Bello in a generation close to what I am buying. Rumor will make a great seed stock foundation dam. Father And Grandfather, Gold and Rumble's genetic profiles are amazing for fineness and uniformity of fineness. All her EPDs are incredibly desirable. We could not be more pleased with the selection of Royal Rumble to improve Angelina's offspring's fleece statistics and traits. Take a look at Rumor's well rounded EPDs, under the DNA icon on this page.

We at Colusa Riverside have improved our fineness to a significant degree with our 3rd & 4th generations of girls, we are now at grade 1 & 2 microns consistently in all offspring. We are now working on our uniformity of fineness as is evidenced in the histogram & EPD AFDSD. To us, it is much more important to have well rounded EPD profile across all traits. Having animals the 5% to 10% range is our goal, but these percentiles across the entire fleece versus having a 1% in just one or two fleece trait. So, Rumble does that for his offspring and now so will Rumor.

Rumor is being bred to Majestic's A Man Among Men who we hope will pack on the density even more than Rumor already has. Man has significant color in his background so it would be nice to get color even though we are in a white breeding program, I just love fawns.
